Pros
  • The work/life balance was the best from all places I've worked in (in 54 reviews)

  • It also encouraged flexible working in which employees could work from home or anywhere really without having to come to the office (in 48 reviews)

Cons
  • Some of the disadvantages are: senior management is not always available, sometimes there is a feel of a barrier between seniors and regular employees (in 18 reviews)

  • Sometimes as it is a big Company you need to involve quite a few people to progress with a project (in 15 reviews)

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    With Telefónica you will be sure to get good salaries, a good benefits package, policies to ensure work-life balance, good team spirit, and the chance to enjoy international professional opportunities in several countries of Europe and LatinAmerica if you want. Top management (gobal level) are cracks.

    Cons

    The industry is under stress, the transformation to became a digital company means reduction and efficiencies everywhere. At local level the short term is the day by day experience.

    Advice to Management

    Put mid and long term into the decision making equation.
    Do not waste the talent you already have in the company. Let the people do what they know.

    I worked at Telefónica full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Years ago it was a wonderful place to work with great care for employees, amazing benefits and good pay. I guess today it's still a nicer place to work than the average company in here.

    Cons

    Everything is rapidly declining, most perks that made this company nice and unique are gone and still going, say bye to annual bonuses, raises, training and job stability. They took out key people from all levels that made the company great and even recently key people in top management quit. It's a sinking boat. Do not expect any growth or learning other than keeping old stuff alive, zero innovation because current management sees innovation as too expensive, they're cutting every single cent going as far as cutting the A/C.

    Advice to Management

    You spent more than 10 years meticulously building a great community by using rigorous HR measures then you blew all this investment in 2 years by kicking new and old people and bringing in tons of badly paid interns that sadly can't even bring value since you got rid of the assets that had the business knowledge. It's going to take probably a decade to repair but you should get started now. Innovate!
